Weekday Cross, in the Lacemarket area of Nottingham, was the main market area in Nottingham. As the location of the town hall, guildhall and main market, it was the centre of the town, before the market moved to the Old Market Square. It was also known as Weekday Market.

The Chamberlain's Accounts contain items of expenditure relating to the purchase of stone and sand and payment to John Mychyll for working the stone.[1] There is also reference to the purchase of drink that was drunk at the cross on Corpus Christi. This may relate to a celebration to mark its completion. About 1711 the "Cross" was familiarly known as "The Pillar." In 1736, the Crosses were cleaned at a cost of 1s 4d[2] This cross was pulled down in 1804. A new Cross was erected in the late 1990s. The site The market The Monday market was for fresh vegetables and butter. Later it moved from Weekday Cross to the 'Monday Cross', now near St. Peters Square. A market was held on Wednesdays and Fridays. It was possible to buy butter, eggs, pigeon, wild fowl, fruit and fish. The Guildhall Weekday Cross showing the Great Central Railway tunnel portal before its demolition to make room for the Nottingham Contemporary gallery When the merchants established a Guild to regulate trade they erected a Guild Hall on Weekday Cross. This building became the Court House and Town Hall when the borough had its own mayor and aldermen. In 1722 Nottingham Corporation built a new town hall in the Market Place. This building became known as the Exchange. The old town hall on Weekday Cross continued to be used alongside the Exchange and was refaced in brick in 1744. The Guildhall was abandoned in 1877 with the opening of the new Nottingham Guildhall, and the old town hall was demolished in 1895 when the Great Central Railway built a tunnel with the portal just underneath Weekday Cross. This site is now occupied by the Nottingham Contemporary gallery. Nottingham Bluecoat School In 1723, land was given by William Thorpe on High Pavement in Weekday Cross was used and the Nottingham Bluecoat School migrated there,[3] remaining for over a century.
